7.0
Ever since After Forever broke up, this album has been on my most awaited albums list. I awaited it even before it was hip and cool to await it, before it was known there would even be one. And my expectations weren't particularly low for it, to put it humbly. I mean, hell yeah! it's Floor Jansen singing! A brilliant voice - powerful, enjoyable and dominating. A voice I've enjoyed immensely for close to a decade. Yes, I'm a sucker for Floor's voice. However... do read on.

Rating: 7 Looking forward to this one, she is the best female vocalist by miles.

It does suck, but I have high hopes for the album.

  Well I've got this from the label, but I don't know if it will be my kind of thing.
I'll give it a go some time though.

Rating: 7 Really disappointed with this, all the songs sound the same. There is no real fire in the songs. No where near as good as After Forever. Floor can do better than this.

Rating: 7 Great expectation turns into disappointment with this... she can really do better. A little bit silly record.
Ag Fox - 06.08.2010 at 21:01  
Rating: 7 Her performance is great imo, but the song writing is not good enough
Lovecraft - 30.09.2010 at 04:30  
  I agree on the lame band name. Weak album! The songwriting is weak, too. I still enjoyed it though. Floor can do better.

Rating: 8 Not AF, but not bad either... still tons better than Tarja

Rating: 9 This album grows on you, big time. When I first was listening to it I rated it a 6 or so.

The more you listen the more you see how special each song is. The best songs are in the middle and end though, so it gets off to a slow start. Just skip the first track or two and it's a superb album One of my top of the year, though it took me a long time to realize.

Give it a few more chances.

I can't agree more. I listened to the album 6 times to actually like and appreciate it.

Rating: 7 With the terrible band name and the way these types of bands tend to go pop and stale, I was expecting this to be a major failure and huge disappointment. While it's nothing compared to After Forever and the song writing isn't incredible (or even very memorable), I have to say I was pleasantly surprised that it at least wasn't that bad. If you like this genre and you like Floor Jansen then definitely give it a listen.
SymphAlchemist - 25.06.2011 at 09:46  
Rating: 9 Just Perfect!! I hadn't even been so into After Forever, but this album is just incredible, Floor's voice is amazing and I can't even mention a favorite song 'cause I would end up saying half the album.

Rating: 10 Masterpiece!!
Perfect Album!!
AngelofDeth - 22.04.2012 at 08:49  
  Just listened to this b/c of After Forever... this is Complete shit and nothing compared to AF.
Laneth - 19.11.2013 at 03:34  
Rating: 6 Not worth it...generic...had it for a couple years and I could only ever get into one song. Floor's voice is superb but that's about it. And she doesnt even use it to its potential...sigh...

Rating: 8 Recommended for the fans of "bombastic progressive modern gothic power symphonic metal".
My final rating is "8.4".

Rating: 7 The comment above just made me realize the progressive tag for this album. We really should stop labeling every band with time signature challenging riffs as progressive.
